Sturridge suffers fresh injury blow

first_imgLiverpool striker Daniel Sturridge faces another two to four weeks on the sidelines, according to a report. Press Association The 25-year-old England forward has been out of action for six weeks due to a thigh strain he picked up on international duty. He had been thought to be close to a comeback but, according to the Liverpool Echo, pulled his calf during training on Thursday and could now be absent for up to another month. center_img “Daniel has pulled his calf,” Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers told the newspaper. “He’s looking at being out for another two to four weeks. “It’s a big blow as we were looking forward to welcoming Daniel back. He has worked tirelessly. “But we have other players training hard and working hard and we will turn to them. It’s why we bulked up the squad in the summer.” Sturridge is now set to miss Sunday’s Barclays Premier League trip to QPR and the midweek Champions League clash with Real Madrid at Anfield at the very least. last_img read more

Silva strikes sink Palace

first_img Press Association David Silva struck twice as Manchester City made light of their absence of strikers to brush troubled Crystal Palace aside 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Palace offered little in what was a routine victory for City, who will be pleased to have won so comfortably without injured strikers Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, and captain Vincent Kompany. Without a recognised forward, City packed their side with six midfielders. James Milner operated in the most advanced role but Silva and Samir Nasri also got forward in support. The system worked well against a Palace side who have now won just once in 11 games, but their lack of cutting edge was evident in a scoreless first half in which they got none of their eight attempts on target. Nasri had the first of them when he stabbed an effort narrowly wide in the second minute after good work from Jesus Navas and Pablo Zabaleta. Palace were limited but did possess some threat in the shape of the skilful Yannick Bolasie, who was by some distance the visitors’ most dangerous player. Bolasie jinked past Martin Demichelis on the right but Joe Hart, fresh from signing a new contract, parried his cross to safety. City survived a scare when Bolasie headed back into the area from a half-cleared free-kick and Fraizer Campbell, onside and unmarked, put an overhead kick across goal and wide. Yaya Toure also got on the scoresheet as the champions moved level on points with Chelsea at the top of the Barclays Premier League. It was in-form City’s eighth successive win in all competitions – one short of equalling a club record. City played a patient game as they looked to pick their way through the Palace defence and the chances eventually came – although most went begging. Toure twice shot over from outside the box and Silva had a close-range effort deflected wide after Nasri wriggled through the defence. Silva then miskicked in front of goal before Zabaleta spurned a great chance when he broke through and clipped the ball over Julian Speroni and wide. Bolasie fired into the side-netting but little else came from Palace as City noticeably stepped up a gear in the second half. They were ahead within four minutes of the restart as Zabaleta again burst into the box but this time pulled back for the inrushing Silva. The Spaniard made a firm connection but he still benefited from a large slice of luck as his shot took a deflection off Scott Dann and looped over Speroni. City looked hungry for more after that and Toure blasted over again as they kept up the pressure. It paid off with a second Silva goal on the hour, the playmaker this time diverting the ball in from six yards from a good low cross by Aleksandar Kolarov. It proved Silva’s last significant action as he made way for Frank Lampard soon after. Palace got the ball in the net when James McArthur headed firmly past Hart from a Bolasie cross but the flag was raised for offside. It was a tight decision and City sought to ensure Palace did not get so close again. They began to close the game down in a professional manner and made it 3-0 with a swift break nine minutes from time. Navas released Milner with a fine through ball and the England man did well to hold up play and wait for Toure to take over. Toure collected possession on the edge of the box and powered forward to smash in a shot off Speroni’s near post. Palace almost forced Demichelis to concede a late own goal but City held onto a clean sheet. last_img read more

Police say 526 possible victims in UK soccer abuse scandal, 184 suspects

first_img(REUTERS) – British police investigating allegations of widespread child sex abuse at soccer clubs dating back to the 1970s said yesterday they had now identified 184 potential suspects and 526 victims, adding other sports had also been implicated in the scandal.Police forces across the country launched inquiries after former player Andy Woodward revealed in November he had been abused as a boy by a youth team coach, prompting other ex-professionals to come forward with allegations.The soccer abuse revelations are the latest in a series of paedophile scandals to have hit Britain in recent years.Victims say the scale of wrongdoing is likely to be worse than in the case of TV star Jimmy Savile, a cigar-chomping BBC television host who abused hundreds of youngsters over six decades until his death in 2011.So far 1 016 referrals of sports abuse have been passed to specialist detectives from a child protection charity and police.The number of possible victims is now 526, up from about 350 last month, with 126 suspects.The National Police Chiefs Council said 248 soccer clubs had been impacted.Police said 22 of the referrals related to other sports including rugby, gymnastics, martial arts, tennis, wrestling, golf, sailing, athletics, cricket, and swimming.“Allegations of non-recent child sexual abuse are complex, often require specialist skills and knowledge, and can take time to progress,” said Chief Constable Simon Bailey, the national police lead on child protection.“However, all allegations and information received by police forces across the country are being acted upon,” he added.Last month, the Premier League cleared Chelsea of breaking its rules in failing to report allegations of historical sex abuse made by their former player Gary Johnson in 2014.Johnson, 57, said he had been abused by former Chelsea chief scout Eddie Heath in the 1970s and received a £50 000 ($61 550) settlement from the club in 2015.last_img read more

Grinding Gears: USC hoops can still make it to March

first_imgEric He | Daily TrojanAfter practice one day before the season began, senior guard Jordan McLaughlin talked about the heightened expectations that came with being ranked the preseason No. 10 team in the country.“We’re not going to be ranked No. 10 and blow it all away,” McLaughlin said.With seven games left in the regular season schedule, the jury is still out on pretty much everything for USC men’s basketball. A season that began with its hype train at full speed ground to a halt with three straight nonconference losses, a defeat to Princeton and then a lackluster Pac-12 opener against Washington.But then the Trojans caught fire, winning eight of their next nine games, their only loss coming on a halfcourt buzzer beater by Stanford. They beat Colorado, Utah and Cal by double digits. They pulled off close wins over Oregon and Oregon State, and then redeemed themselves against Stanford. And they took a huge step toward solidifying their NCAA Tournament bid.Still, there is work to do. USC lost to UCLA last Saturday in a game they should’ve won, if not for immaturity on the part of sophomore forward Nick Rakocevic and poor late-game execution. With or without De’Anthony Melton, it is clear at this point that the Trojans are not as strong as the No. 10 ranking they were handed preseason.They can, however, do their best not to “blow it all away.” Right now, the best case scenario for this team would be to make the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season, and go from there. Expectations can shift over the course of the season, and considering the start to this year, simply making the tournament would be a win. To do that, USC must get through this pivotal weekend ahead against the Arizona schools in the desert.On Thursday, the Trojans will play an upstart Arizona State program that has faded in Pac-12 play but burst onto the scene early in the season with several impressive wins. On Saturday, they face No. 13 Arizona, the Pac-12 favorite.These two games, combined with last Saturday’s loss to UCLA, constitute perhaps the most important stretch of USC’s remaining schedule. The Sun Devils may be faltering in conference play, but still sport the most dynamic offense the Trojans will see this season. They lead the Pac-12 in scoring offense, while the Wildcats, after a poor start, have won 16 of 18 games, lead the Pac-12 in field goal percentage and 3-point field goal percentage and have emerged once again as a Final Four hopeful. History does not bode well for USC on this road trip. The Trojans have been swept on their last five sojourns to the desert and seven of the last eight years. The last time they beat both Arizona teams in the same season was in 1985. This history underscores just how big these two games are. At the very least, USC needs a split — and if it can’t pull the upset at Arizona, at least make it a close game. Because if the Trojans lose both games, there are few opportunities left to climb back up in the tournament picture.Heading into Thursday, the Trojans rank 45th in RPI. That should be good enough to qualify for the tournament — both ESPN and CBS currently project USC as an 11th seed. Both opponents this weekend rank ahead of USC in RPI — Arizona State is 44th, Arizona is 16th. After these two games, the Trojans won’t have a chance to really build on their resume. Their only big test will be the season finale against UCLA, which is 56th in RPI. Otherwise, games against Oregon, Oregon State, Colorado and Utah won’t move the needle.USC has been through a lot this season — the preseason hype, the early struggles, the injury bug that has hit star junior forward Bennie Boatwright again. And, of course, the ongoing FBI investigation that led to the firing of assistant coach Tony Bland and the absence of Melton all season has lingered in the back of everyone’s minds.Perhaps this team, which some thought would be a sleeper to make the Final Four, won’t be the one that brings USC hoops back to glory. The Trojans won’t fully live up to their No. 10 preseason ranking. But they can’t blow it all away, and a couple of wins this weekend would go a long ways toward avoiding that.Eric He is a junior majoring in print and digital journalism.

Sugar workers to take to the streets in 2018

first_img…vow to continue fight for severance payWith the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) having denied its efforts to have the local Court of Appeal “urgently” adjudicate its application to prevent the closure of the East Demerara and Rose Hall sugar estates, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) will be moving to the streets in the coming year toMany of these Wales workers were protesting since early February for their severance (Shemuel Fanfair file photo)ensure that displaced workers are adequately compensated. This was revealed by President of GAWU Komal Chand who told Guyana Times on Wednesday that the Finance Minister should announce a substantial budgetary allocation to pay workers their severance. He pointed out that in the meantime, the displaced employees will turn out in large numbers to protest the non-payment of severance in early January.“We have to ascertain for certain that there will be a budgetary commitment to pay the workers,” the long-time GAWU head stressed.The two Unions – GAWU and NAACIE (National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees) had appealed Chief Justice (ag) Roxanne George’s November 10, 2017 denial of their application to quash the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) and Cabinet’s decision to close the East Demerara and Rose Hall estates.They contended that the closure decisions were improper and there were insufficient consultations among the Government and GuySuCo, and the GAWU and NAACIE. Now that the CCJ has denied the Union’s request to the matter to be called up before December 31, Chand revealed that GAWU will petition the local courts to ensure that workers receive adequate compensation for their loss of employment and lack of benefits.“We were trying to speed them up and have a decision before the 31st but that unfortunately didn’t happen so we have to wait until the court hearing. The appeal is not only for them to hold hands on the closure but to compensate the workers…many of them will not be able to sustain a proper livelihood during the rest of their working life,” he observed.Meanwhile, sugar workers formerly attached to the Wales Sugar Estate related also on Wednesday that they have had enough of waiting on the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to pay their severance. They highlighted the many far-reaching challenges of not having consistent employment over the past 12 months.Wales ended operations on December 31, 2016, and many workers since then are still to be paid severance after refusing to take up employment at Uitvlugt Estate, some 22 miles from the West Bank Demerara estate. Those workers were affected and thousands more family members and the surrounding villages also faced the impact of the closure. Earlier this month, the retrenchment of nearly 4000 workers attached to Rose Hall, East Demerara and Skeldon Estates was revealed and those employees have expressed fear of facing a similar fate to their former colleagues at Wales who are still awaiting their outstanding packages.Many civil society bodies and other interest groups have been urging the coalition Government to re-think the closure of estates and to implement plans that will tackle the welfare of workers. In its end of year statement, the Private Sector Commission (PSC) highlighted that come 2018, it will in fact be 5000 sugar workers who will be left unemployed if Wales is factored into the current numbers. The body is of the view that this action will have “serious repercussions” for the New Year.“The Commission stands by its proposal which was previously submitted asking that Government reverses these decisions and rethink a plausible solution that would alleviate the dire economic and social consequences of layoffs and hardships,” the PSC noted on Wednesday.It was in August that the PSC had proposed for Government to enter into public-private partnerships to invest in and manage selected estates. However, in the coming days, estates at Rose Hall, and Enmore would cease operations, while Skeldon is slated to be privatised. Meanwhile, only three would be kept in operation – at Albion in East Berbice, Blairmont in West Berbice, and Uitvlugt on the West Coast of Demerara. (Shemuel Fanfair)last_img read more
